SummersRadio™ New Music! Love Echo – ‘Lovecats’
Love Echo are a duo consisting of Vic Miranda and Vicki Glass – and they’ve just released a new cover of The Cure’s ‘The Love Cats’! Vic provides the dreamy sounds and production and Vicki provides the equally dreamy vocals. The band list the title as just one word – ‘Lovecats’ and it’s only the second song/ single that the duo has released, following ‘We’ which came out in May.
The Cure released ‘The Love Cats’ as a single in 1983 – it became their first top ten single it the U.K. – and it later appeared on their compilation of early singles and b-sides called ‘Japanese Whispers’. While the lyrics are completely intact on Love Echo’s version – they’re delivered in a much more sultry fashion – and the music has an altogether different feel.
There’s no jazzy bits or any of Robert Smith’s ‘bah bat da buh’s – just the hypnotic piano over a slow beat with some additional atmospheric synths. It’s quite the transformation really – it’s a lullaby now – not to be confused with The Cure song called ‘Lullaby’!
If this fine cover is to your liking it’s available for purchase on their Bandcamp page here: http://lovecho.bandcamp.com/album/lovecats and you can keep up with the duo on Facebook m’here: http://www.facebook.com/LoveEchoMusic
